New Films in the Human Rights Film Collection

The Human Rights Film Collection at Babbidge Library has over 470 films in it.   Here are a few of the most recent additions to the collection:

12.511, Caso Rosendo Radilla: Herida Abierta de la Guerra Social en México.  Comisión Mexicana de Defensa y Promoción de los Derechos Humanos (CMDPDH): WITNESS, c2008.  [English Subtitles]  Call number: HV6322.3 .C37 2008

“In 1974, Rosendo Radilla Pacheco disappeared at a military checkpoint in southern Mexico. As a prominent activist and mayor, Rosendo fought for access to health and education in Atoyac, in the state of Guerrero–a region historically plagued by hardship and neglected by authorities.Decades later, Radilla’s unresolved case reached the Inter-American Court of Human Rights as a emblematic example of government activities during the Dirty War–a period when the autoritarian regimes of the 1960s and 1970’s employed miltary tactics to crush opposition movements. Now Mexico faces charges of crimes against humanity. The video tells the stories of Radilla’s daughter, Tita, and other families who have disappeared relatives. They show us how seeking the truth in the past strengthens justice in the future.”
